So I hooked up the solar electric fence for pigs on friday, let the shocking begin! (just kidding PETA). This is the solar fence charger we had bought last year.

Image

and ran the electric tape around the bottom of the pen

Image

I hooked up my leads

Image

and waited, here pig pig, sue sue

Image

they each got zapped twice and they were done, the next day I was feeding them and the wind blew the tape against a piece of grass and as soon as the pigs heard the snap of the wire they took off into the pen, they learned quick. So I decided on Sunday to let them out into the pasture area. I went around and weed wacked one more time under the wire

Image

and started running the wire

Image

the pigs are younger this year than last when I let them out so I lowered the bottom tape a little, you want it to hit them in the snout so the back up, if they get hit behind the ears they will surge forward through the tape

Image

I did the same test as last year, I stuck some bread right under the wire to see if they would take it, after it sitting there all day left alone, I felt safe letting them out

Image

they were a little hesitant at first

Image

they quickly headed towards the tall grass and started rooting

Image

My wife wanted to get in and play with the little buggers

Image

Image

she decided she wanted to pick one up so I could take a picture and send one to her mother

Image

yeah they were having none of that

Image

Image

Image

she tried sneaking up on them

Image

fail!
